VIENNA (AP) — Authorities have seized 500 kilograms (about 1,100 pounds) of cannabis during a routine check on a camping van entering southern Austria from Slovenia. Two Italian men were arrested.
Police in Carinthia province said the drugs — divided into 500 packages — were hidden inside the roof of the vehicle, which was stopped Saturday afternoon by a patrol on a highway. A sniffer dog alerted officers to the stash, and the van was taken to a nearby police station and searched.
Sunday's police statement says the drugs had an estimated street value of 5 million euros ($6.9 million).
It wasn't immediately clear where the drugs came from and where the Italian driver and passenger were heading. Authorities loaded the drugs into 50 garbage bags and seized them.
